Ross, Not jumping ship.. It is for a Stocker 68 CJ Mustang I just purchased.
Brent, Im told they hold up very well so used is OK but new would also work. I need to put an clutch, Bell and trans together.
I will be putting my BI/BO proshifted/faceplated toploader together this week after a needed freshening. Will be putting up for sale. Has all new internals to include 2'3'4 gears and proshifting and faceplate lugs. New 3/4 faceplate slider/hub assembly. New shift rails, detents. 3/4 fork and new output shaft and complete small parts. Has Mr gasket v-gate shifter w/stops and 31 spline trans yoke for either 1310/1330 u-joint or steel w/1350 u- joint also the transmission mount to go with it. $1050.00 you pay shipping. If interested email me. Would be good trans for a stocker.
is Toploader style. Either is a great trans but the Jerico seems to choice in a Ford application. Pretty hard to find a "good" used one of either. Might have to buck up for new and get the gear ratios you need. A Soft Loc clutch is also in your future so I can see you dropping $7500.00 but you won't regret it.
is maybe the dual bearing center support and mid-plate design by G-Force that keepd the mainshaft and counter shafts from seperating under load , Jerico doesn't have it ... not sure what HP level causes the shafts to seperate as there are plenty of people running Jerico with no problems
I'm a Jerico guy so I might be jaded on another brand but I've heard both are good choices. I like I always say "you can have my Jerico when you pry it from my cold dead fingers"...or was that my AR?....anyway, great new score Dave and good luck with it!!!
I can`t imagine a 428 Stocker hurting a healthy Jerico, in 12 years of racing my 428 Fairmont, with a early 90s used Jerico I bought from a SS/AM 8 second 57 Corvette, I have hurt 3rd gear ONCE. It cost $300.00 to repair. The other used Jerico in my Mustang has been in for 6 years, and runs mid 10s, and all I`ve ever done ischange the gear oil a couple of times. Now, that said, a local racer has broken several Jericos, and switched to G Forces, however one car is a mid 8 second SS/AH 68 Hemi Cuda, and the other is a all steel 71 Cuda with a 520 inch BB MoPar, that runs 8.80`s. A FE Stocker will never see that kind of stress.

Due to a change of plans My Son is selling His Jericho 4 speed with the long shifter and a new softloc clutch and flywheel setup. Its all new and never used. I think its a 308 1st gear. Hes willing to deal.
